Equalizer Single Bar Chest Press

For the single bar chest press, set one Equalizer Bar on its side on the floor. The round end should be at the bottom closest to you and the open end should be facing away. Grasp the sides of the Equalizer bar with your hands parallel to each other. To perform the Chest Press you may either begin on your knees in a modified push-up position or with your legs extended in a standard push-up position. Lower yourself down toward the floor maintaining alignment of your spine. Your chest will be about a fist width off the floor in the bottom position. Great cue is to lead with your “Belly Button”. Press your body back up to its starting position again while maintaining body alignment. Great cue is to lead with your “Mid-back”. Repeat the movement for prescribed amount of repetitions.
